Minnesota DNR Offering Free Park Day on Saturday
UNDATED (WJON NEWS) -- Saturday will be a good day to go visit one of Minnesota's State Parks because it won't cost you a daily parking pass that day.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is waiving permit fees at all 75 state parks and recreation areas. It's one of four such days the DNR offers every year.
The DNR says September is a great time of year to visit a park because it is typically warm enough to enjoy one of the 33 swimming beaches, but also offers great hiking, biking, and picnic areas.
If you're looking for certain areas or amenities, the DNR has a park finder tool available.
